Default Caster Turntables

I'm thinking about buying some camber / caster turntables to tinker with wheel alignment on my van, but not sure which ones are good/which to avoid without spending a shed load of money!

Can anyone recommend any or advise which to steer clear of?

Just seen some on ebay, take a look. They are not mine just came across them while browsing.

Could always DIY! I use (and still use) a couple of scrap steel angles, a digital angle gauge, Slip plates are lino tiles and grease. I use this for both Camber and Castor measurements. For Toe measurements, I use the tried and true stringing method. Got to say my car tracks straight at 140+ and no uneven tire wear. Its more fun doing it yourself!

I bought the 15 gauge, just need the turntables. Like your idea for them. Will see if I can find bits of steel plate or lino to use. Should save a few hundred quid!
